Alzheimer’s Patient Assaulted at Nursing Home for Her Wedding Ring

(FOX 2 Detroit) – A male orderly has been arrested for beating and stealing from a 69-year-old Alzheimer’s resident inside a West Bloomfield nursing home. 

The attack allegedly happened just days after the woman moved into the facility. 

(Warning: the video contains images of the assault that may be distressing to some.)

Kristine Tracy’s husband, Stan, says her wedding ring was stolen. The two have been married for nearly 50 years. 

“It’ the longest memory the two of us have. She never took it off,” he said. “Honestly, I would’ve liked to of gone in there and grabbed people by the throat and shaken them.”

On July 11, Stan could no longer take care of Kristine’s Alzheimer’s so she was placed in a nursing home at Villa at Green Lake Estates in West Bloomfield.  But days later, she was beaten.

“What goes through someone’s mind to take advantage of an Alzheimer’s victim, 67 years old, tear off a ring that’s been on her finger since 1971,” said Greg Rohl, the attorney suing Villa at Green Lake Estates.

Stan says the nursing home told him Kristine’s injuries were because she fell.

But police said videotape showed Kristine was assaulted by an orderly who worked at the nursing home. 

Meanwhile, the suspect, Tirrell Mercer, Jr. was charged with armed robbery, a felony, and elder abuse, a misdemeanor.
